People remember late family members, friends on Eid

Islamabad—A large number of people on visited graveyards to remember their departed loved ones on Eid day and offer Fateha for their souls.
Women, children and youngsters started visiting cemeteries on Chand Raat and early morning on Eid day to remember their family members and friends buried there and recited verses from the Holy Quran.
They also cleaned graves and showered rose petals, laid wreaths and lit incenses in the memory of their dear ones.
Special flower stalls were also set up near all the graveyards of twin cities for the people to buy flowers, rose water and rose petals. Muhammad Faheem, who came to offer Fateha on the grave of his father who passed four months back, said, “I am feeling so alone as it is first Eid after my father’s death.”
Jameel Ahmed, a flower seller outside H-10 Graveyard, said, “We set up stalls a day before Eid for the people’s convenience as many of them visit graveyards after morning prayers.”—APP
